Steps to buy a property on Costa Blanca

How can you Buy property in Spain?

Experience has shown that buying a property in Spain is quite a complicated process, and for some, it may seem rather daunting. Lack of knowledge of Spanish laws, the language barrier, contradictory pieces of advice, suspicious figures, and incomplete information. This is even not an exhaustive list of problems that you may encounter when buying real estate. By contacting our company, you can get rid of all the problems associated with buying real estate in Spain.
Our main goal is to make sure that you are satisfied with the purchased real estate and that you will speak well of us when remembering the process of buying property in Spain so that you can recommend us to your friends and relatives in the future!

Steps to buying property in Alicante:

Step 1: Preparation

Looking through the catalogue of property on our website and choosing the objects you are interested in. Then, you can contact us in any convenient way. Our specialists will provide you with detailed advice on all issues regarding arriving in Spain to purchase a property.

Step 2: Inspection of properties

Upon your arrival in Spain, our employee will meet you at the airport, and you can start inspecting properties on the first day. Personal inspection of properties will help you get your bearings in the variety of offers, evaluate the characteristics of an apartment/villa/house and make your final choice.

Step 3: Gathering documents

After you have chosen the property, you can proceed with the legal process of the purchase and sale transaction and the preparation of documents.

At this stage, we provide the following services:

  • Registration of the Foreigner Identification Number (NIE) required for the transaction.
  • Opening an account with a Spanish bank.
  • Mortgage loan arrangements in a Spanish bank, if necessary.
  • Escort to a notary’s or a lawyer’s office.

At this stage, a Memorandum of Understanding outlining the wishes of the parties and the date and time of the transaction is also drafted.

Step 4: Concluding the transaction

During this stage, a deed of purchase (Escritura pública) is drafted before a notary and signed by both parties. The seller receives money in the form of a bank check, and the buyer receives the keys for the purchased property and a copy of the sale and purchase agreement. From now on, you are the rightful owner of real estate in Spain!
If you pay the full cost of the apartment using your own funds, the purchase process takes 5–7 days; if you take a mortgage loan to purchase it, the formalities will take about 1.5 months.

Our company offers a wide range of additional services that can help you solve any issues related to the transaction completion and maintenance of real estate after purchase.

Please contact Costa Altea if you wish to buy your dream house/apartment on the Costa Blanca.
